    Pros

    Accommodation and food is provided
    L&T brand name

    Cons

    Hectic working hours
    very inefficient management
    One of the worst HR departments
    There is no place for u, if u r not good in politics
    Number of hours you spend on sites are taken into account rather than your work
    GETs feel under-utilized
    Company sucks the life out of you
    no social life
    forget about your family

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    please dont hire talented students from prestigious college, coz they leave your company anyway once they realize that they are nothing but sheeps. Hire only diploma ppl coz they are ready to work for u in those conditions
